Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Proteger y expandir el acceso a cuidados de la salud asequibles y de calidad.
  • Invertir en una educación pública de alta calidad desde pre-K hasta la University of California (UC) y la California State University (CSU). Incluir más educación, capacitación laboral y programas de formación en Ciencias, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, STEM).
  • Enfrentarnos al ataque de Trump a las normas ambientales de California.

Experiencia

Biografía

Sunday Gover is a lifelong San Diegan, public school mom and a successful small business owner.  Now, Sunday is running for State Assembly to bring new leadership to Sacramento and make real progress on the priorities that matter to San Diego.

As a mother and 18-year Scripps Ranch resident, Sunday understands the challenges ordinary people face and will bring that fresh perspective to Sacramento to deliver for our communities.

Running a small family business, Sunday knows what it takes to create jobs, meet a payroll and contribute to a growing economy. 

In the State Assembly, Sunday will focus on the priorities that matter to us.  Helping families afford college.  Fixing our highways and roads.  Expanding healthcare coverage.  Making it easier to build affordable housing.  Rooting out wasteful spending and abuse. 

Raised by a single mom, Sunday Gover knows what it’s like to overcome tough challenges and work hard to succeed.  It started with a paper route, babysitting and mowing neighbors' lawns at age 12.   Sunday worked her way through college and beat cancer in her 20s.  Always working to get ahead and provide for her kids, Sunday was a Starbucks District Manager and now runs a thriving family real estate practice, helping local families get their piece of the American Dream.

All her life, Sunday has given back to our community.  Sunday coached girls and boys soccer for 15 years, and was a volunteer art teacher in her children's schools.  From working with adults with special needs to volunteering with the early AIDS Foundation and helping field calls at a rape crisis hotline, Sunday has always helped people facing extraordinary challenges.  A steadfast supporter of women’s health, Sunday served as a volunteer patient advocate at Planned Parenthood, helping women get quality care and support.

Sunday attended University of San Diego High School and graduated from UCSD.  She lives in Scripps Ranch with her partner Kim, their four children and their dog, Lily.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Sunday Gover:

I run a thriving real estate business, and I can tell you without a doubt that California’s housing crisis is a supply problem. The only way out of it is to build more housing at all market rates. We need more affordable housing and more middle class housing. Sacramento must encourage housing development by providing incentives, cutting red tape, and holding developers accountable to the promises they make rather than letting them skirt housing requirements with loopholes.

According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Respuesta de Sunday Gover:

I have always focused on the issues that matter to people, rather than the partisan element of politics. At the end of the day politics and governing should be about helping everyday San Diegans solve problems. I will work to ensure families have access to quality, affordable healthcare; increase investment in public education; protect our environment; and ensure equal economic opportunity for everyone regardless of gender. Those are my issues, and I will work with anyone, regardless of party or ideology, who wants to help solve those problems. Politicians need to regain their focus on the people they serve.

Climate changes, and the shifting between very wet weather and drought, worry Californians. What strategies would allow that your district to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific.
Respuesta de Sunday Gover:

California is a global leader on climate action and our progress must be protected. Every San Diegan deserves clean air and clean water. I will fight to protect our environment from the extreme Trump agenda that seeks to rollback our protections and increase the risk of droughts and other extreme weather. 

As such, we need long-term water planning for the state of California that includes conservation, recycling, and rainwater capture and storage. Additionally, the droughts cause massive public safety issues. Fire season in California is getting longer and more extreme every year. My district is very susceptible to fire danger. My family and I have had to evacuate two times, so I understand the very real threat this poses to public safety and our environment. I believe the legislature has been negligent in its planning for wildfires. 

Sacramento needs leadership that is willing to make long term, difficult decisions climate action, water resources, and fire safety.

What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of the youngest and most poverty stricken Californians?
Respuesta de Sunday Gover:

California should implement universal pre-K. Pre-K has been shown to improve everything from reading scores to crime rates. Additionally, a safe place for children to go during to the day would see more parents, especially mothers, return to the work force and grow our economy. The cost of childcare is crippling many middle and working class families. California has the highest child poverty rate in the nation, and universal pre-K would even the educational playing field for low-income students and help close the economic opportunity gap that exists between zip codes. Every child deserves a quality education and a shot at the American dream.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

I’m running for Assembly because the career politicians just don’t get it.  It’s time for a change and a fresh approach to getting things done.

I’m not part of the downtown power establishment or the insiders in the Capitol.

I'm a mom raising my kids in Scripps Ranch.  And I run a small family business.  I understand the struggles ordinary people face, because I’ve lived them my entire life. 

And that’s what’s missing in Sacramento: your voices, your values, your needs. 

In the Assembly, I’ll focus on the priorities that matter to us.  Helping families afford college.  Fixing our highways and roads.  Expanding healthcare coverage.  Making it easier to build affordable housing.  Rooting out wasteful spending and abuse. 

I’m a middle-class mom from San Diego, and I think that’s exactly the fresh perspective Sacramento needs.  And it’s the new leadership San Diego families deserve.
